Target demographics: Girls in grades 7-10
Geographic areas served: Washington, DC and Maryland
Programs: A Bigger Picture partners with schools and community centers to provide girls in the Washington, DC and Maryland area with:
•Educational and comprehensive workshops
•Exposure to new experiences through our enrichment activities
•An opportunity to give back through our community service projects
In turn our girls are provided with:
•Leadership, confidence and forward-thinking skills
•A safe place to learn and grow outside of a traditional classroom setting
•Opportunities to develop positive relationships with other students and mentors
•A positive attitude towards school and academics
A Bigger Picture does a wonderful service to the community. It gives urban girls in the DC community the chance to learn about things that they not only wouldn't get to experience, but wouldn't even be exposed to. From community service to visiting museums and meeting highly successfully professional women, A Bigger Picture gives the girls an opportunity to see the heights to what they can achieve.

A Bigger Picture is a much needed organization. In todays' society we see a ack of morals, values, and parental involvement amongst our youth. We desperately need these types of programs to aid in the development of our children. The work that Ms. Evans is doing in the lives of these young ladies is outstanding! Her passion, committment and love for these young ladies will forever leave a lasting impression on their lives. Her work is to be commended......
